Lake Massabesic New Rules for Recreational Use

Despite the great effort of the equine community, on April 24, 2014 the Manchester Water Works Board voted to enact the following new rules for Lake Massabesic watershed. The rules will be effective on or before June 1, 2014.

The new rules:
  • Allow horses on gravel fire roads, as long as they wear some kind of diaper or waste-collection device.
  • Allow horses on nearly all watershed property if part of a commission-approved, organized riding event. Event plans must include immediate removal of horse droppings.
  • Prohibit horses in the water or on the shoreline, beaches, boat launches or public parks.
